    N00ter Keeps ISPs In Line Over Net Neutrality

    It may be a while before Congress & Friends get this whole Net Neutrality debate squared away. But that’s no biggie, since Dan Kaminsky has cooked up his own little solution to figure out if your ISP is throttling service. It’s called N00ter, short for neutral rooter, and Kaminsky showed it off for the first time at the Black Hat security conference in Las Vegas, reports Forbes. Read More

    T-Mobile Customers Continue To Jump Ship, But With Less Haste Than Before

    T-Mobile’s customer base has been dwindling for a while now, but the migration from pink seems to be slowing with just 50,000 customers bouncing out of there in the second quarter. That’s compared to the 90,000 T-Mo customers that jumped ship last year. With this past quarter’s losses, T-Mobile’s current subscriber base comprises 33.6 million people — quite a… Read More

    “GameBox For Facebook” Tunnels Facebook Games To The iPad

    Love them or hate them, one thing holds true of Facebook games: they’re crazy addictive.

Luckily, a new iPad app has emerged that will let you play some of your favorite Flash-based Facebook games outside where the sun shines… Read More

    Facebook “Don’t Share This” Button Makes Brief Appearance In Netflix iOS App

    Now this is what we call weird. It would be one thing if Netflix accidentally activated its (currently illegal) Facebook “Share” button. But it’s looking like Netflix accidentally posted a “Don’t Share This” Facebook button. Curious? Entirely. Let’s delve deeper. Read More

  • Huawei Announces The Vision Smartphone With New “3D” User Interface

    Huawei Announces The Vision Smartphone With New “3D” User Interface

    Huawei has taken a note from the big boys like Samsung and HTC and decided to build a UI of its own. Unlike TouchWiz or Sense, Huawei’s UI has something different to bring to the table: 3D.

    FCC Analysis Reveals ISP Speed Winners And Losers

    So let’s say you walk into a Best Buy looking for a new tablet. You walk up to the guy in the blue polo and tell him what you’re looking for. After taking you to the tablet section, he whips out a handkerchief and blindfolds you. “They’re all really good!” he promises. “The one on the left is $499, the one in the middle is $549, and the one on the right is… Read More

    ESRB Game Ratings App Enters The Windows Marketplace

    One look at Grand Theft Auto 4 and you’re probably not thinking, “Little Timmy or Susie would just love that game.” No one wants their kids desensitized to reasonless mass murder or the dreaded F-bomb, and understandably so.

  • T-Mobile Rebounds With 7-Eleven After Radio Shack Split

    T-Mobile Rebounds With 7-Eleven After Radio Shack Split

    Breaking up is hard to do, but T-Mobile and Radio Shack seem to be handling the split rather well, all things considered. After Radio Shack alleged that T-Mo materially breached the terms of their agreement, the two have gone their separate ways. Or at least, they will on September 15. This is more of the awkward, still-living-together phase. In the mean time, Radio Shack has moved on to the… Read More

    T-Mobile’s New Terms & Conditions Provide For Value Plan Migrations

    Anyone who’s ever taken a stab at reading through a Terms & Conditions agreement knows that they normally rival the Iliad in length. There are two reasons companies do this: first, the more words, the more coverage and protection that company gets within its T&C, and second, the less likely you are to actually read it and find out that you’ve agreed to sell your first… Read More
